About Us

Dog-ON-It-Parks is a collaboration of ideas in many ways. When you combine 35 years experience as a veterinary assistant (and showing and breeding dogs!), with 25 years of experience designing playground equipment for public parks, the result is a wide range of pet-friendly products designed by experts. 

Our goal at Dog-ON-It-Parks is to specialize in products that draw people to dog parks and help make off-leash areas a destination in every community. A trip to the dog park is one of the very few multi-generational activities the whole family can enjoy, in a setting that is welcoming to everyone regardless of age or physical ability.

As avid dog owners – We have over 800 pounds of dogs at the office! – we want each and every product to be safe, fun, and incredibly durable.

Top Dog!  With the assistance of our enthusiastic and extremely dedicated staff (see directory below), we have quickly become the world leader in products specifically designed for dog parks and pet-friendly communities.

Here in the dog-friendly Pacific Northwest, we say that if your town doesn’t have a dog park, it is one! While that's just fine for "dog people" like us,  it can sometimes cause friction within the community if people are using undesignated areas as dog parks (especially if they forget to pick up afterwards).

Our vision is to make every community more pet-friendly by helping to create destinations where both people and their dogs can get exercise and fresh air.

Feel free to contact us if there's a product you'd like to see or just to let us know how we are doing. Thanks for stopping by!

Age:
7, 7, & 4

Pet’s Name(s):
Duchess
Age:
Puppy!
Favorite/Funniest Quirk:

She’s still a puppy and hasn’t quite grown into her paws yet so she is always stumbling and falling but then stands up and looks around like someone tripped her! She also thinks it’s the best thing ever to chase around our cat Duke, who isn’t quite as amused by Duchess charging at him.

Favorite Treat:
Everything! But she especially loves when we put peanut butter in her Kong.
Best Trick:
We are in the process of house breaking her and she now knows that once she goes to the bathroom outside she gets a treat so she pretends to pee then comes running up to claim her reward.
What I love about my pet(s):

She’s so goofy and loving! It’s so much fun to watch her learn, grow and take on every new experience bravely!

Table scraps! 
Best Trick:
They all do dog agility, but they also know "Down" and "Stack" (for showing)

What I love about my pet(s):

I love that my pets are individuals; they each have something unique about them that makes me love them more every day.
